I first thought of the concept “The Five Biggest Wedding Planning Myths” last year, in 2014, after consulting with many engaged couples that needed serious help navigating the wedding planning process. Confusion over budgets, vendors, and the DIY craze led to a lot of heart to hearts and troubleshooting sessions with my clients, all with excellent outcomes, but I realized a quick but concise guide about event planning was sorely needed in the market place. It was my goal to educate the consumer in order to let the bride and groom feel in control of the planning process, not confused or overwhelmed.
One of my top recommendations for bridal salons is La Soie. Their salons are calming oases with absolutely stunning gowns. The ladies at La Soie Pasadena teamed up with us to host an evening out for brides, featuring a fashion show, a reading from the book with a Q&A, and delicious food from Amy’s Culinary Adventures and gorgeous (and yummy) cakes by Roobina’s Bakery. Photographer Shani Barel, videographer Shawn Tanowitz of Pivotal Media, and Lotus and Lily Floral and Event Design also contributed their talents, and Pop Champagne and Dessert Bar also provided libations. Very special thanks to all who made these elegant evening come to life!
Our monthly newsletter and podcasts about the Myths are full of expert, excellent tips for brides and grooms; sign up to receive emails here. Happy planning!
